Membership Network for Corporate Venture Capital, Innovation, M&A and Strategy Executives
Project North is an exclusive, members-only network offering an intimate forum to facilitate:
Access to leading technologists, venture capitalists and startups.
Early exposure to disruptive, class-leading technologies.
Exchange of best practices from peer executives across the U.S.
Formation and growth of corporate venture capital funds and innovation departments.
Roundtables are held each quarter and include discussions with leading academics, venture capitalists and technologists on new opportunities across member industries.
Discussions are followed by a members-only dinner which features presentations from participating members around their corporate venture capital and innovation practice.
ON A PLANE
Up to three trips per year for member executives to entrepreneurial hubs across the country to meet with leading technologists, venture capitalists, startups and peers.
The OnRamp Conference Series grew out of a desire to provide entrepreneurs at various stages of growth with access to high level corporate leaders and later stage investors.
Started by gener8tor in 2013, OnRamp has evolved into vertical-specific events featuring conference programming and curated one-on-one pitch sessions between startups and corporate venture capital and innovation executives.
OnRamp strives to be the premier gathering of corporate venture capital and innovation executives in each industry it serves.
Project North members receive complimentary Corporate Group Registration to all OnRamp conferences, which includes a private, box-level suite for taking one-on-one meetings with startups, the full list of startup applicants, VIP dinner and priority speaking slots.
